Part 1 of the interview with Charles Woods
Part 1 of the interview with Charles Woods is above. Part 2 is at the bottom of this article.
Thursday on the Glenn Beck Program, Glenn interviewed Charles Woods whose son Tyrone Woods, a former Navy SEAL, was killed during the attacks on the Libyan embassy in Benghazi. The interview is one of the first he had done since his sons death. During his talk with Glenn, he revealed the shocking details of his meetings with President Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to Woods, none of our country’s leaders were empathetic with his situation, nor were they honest about what really happened to his son. And it has only been through his personal faith that he has remained centered and calm through this tragedy.
When he joined the program, Woods explained that he had been a fan of Glenn’s radio show, but hadn’t listened for several months. The other day he happened to tune in and heard Glenn reviewing the available intelligence that the White House had access to in regards to the attack, as well as the evidence that the administration did not do all they could have done to rescue the four Americans killed. Woods decided he needed to speak up. He first called into Glenn’s program but could not get through, and so he tried Lars Larson where he first told his story.
In the interview with Glenn, Woods detailed his encounters with the top members of the Obama administration, including the President himself.
“I’m a retired attorney for six years I was an administrative law judge and in the several thousands cases I heard my job was to tell who was telling the truth and who wasn’t,” Woods explained. “There were four pods at Andrews Air Force Base and when he (Obama) came over to where we were I could tell he was very conflicted person who was not at peace with himself. Shaking hands with him quite frankly was like shaking hands with a dead fish. His face was pointed towards me but he would not look me in the eye. His eyes were over my shoulder and not in a forceful voice said ‘I’m really sorry Mr. Woods.’”
“And I could tell he was not sorry. He had no remorse,” Woods continued.
“The Vice President was also there,” Woods explained. “He said ‘I’m Joe Biden’. He said he had received one of these ‘damn phone calls’ when he had lost a family member. And then about a half hour later he approached me and said – and these are the exact words he said I don’t speak like this – quote and in an extremely loud and boisterous voice he said: ‘Did your sons always have balls the size of cueballs?’”
“I will ask you the question: Is that the voice of someone who is truly sorry?” Woods asked Glenn.
Glenn was most taken aback by the story of what Hillary Clinton told Woods. For over a week, the White House has been trying to push the narrative that President Obama said from the beginning that the attack on the embassy was a terrorist attack, not the a protest that got out of hand . But Clinton’s statements to Woods conflicted with that statement.
Woods explained, “I do appreciate her taking the time from her schedule to meet with the four families. While we were in the pod over there with our family she came over shook my hand and I reached out and hugged her shoulder. Her countenance was not good. And she made the statement to me that first of all she was sorry and then she said ‘We will make sure the person who made that film is arrested and prosecuted.’ ”
Clinton was referring to a controversial YouTube film that the Obama administration claimed inspired the “spontaneous protests” that led to the attacks.
“And when she said that I could tell that she was not telling me the truth. She’s more intelligent than I am, and she had to also know she was not telling me the truth.”
After describing his encounters with the members of the Obama administration, Woods expressed frustration with the lack of transparency on what really happened in Libya.
“I’m totally transparent in my life. I have nothing to hide. Why are they not transparent?” he said.
Originally, Woods and the rest of the families of those killed had decided they would not release a statement regarding the incident. However, after speaking with his wife Woods decided it would be best to put his feelings on paper and vocalize his thoughts.
I want to honor my son, Ty Woods, who responded to the cries for help and voluntarily sacrificed his life to protect the lives of other Americans. In the last few days it has become public knowledge that within minutes of the first bullet being fired the White House knew that these heroes would be slaughtered if immediate air support was denied. Apparently C-130s wer ready to repsond immediately. In less than an hour the perimeters could have been secured and American lives could have been saved.
After seven hours of fighting numerically superior forces, my son’s life was sacrificed because of the White House’s decision.
This has nothing to do with politics. This has to do with integrity and honor. My son was a true American hero. We need more heroes today. My son showed moral courage.
This is an opportunity for the person or persons who made the decision to sacrifice my son’s life to stand up.
Woods told Glenn and TheBlaze audience that his sense of peace after the loss of his son was tied to his faith. It had only been through God, faith, and prayer that he had remained calm and centered through this tragedy.
“The only thing I want is to hug my son Ty in Heaven. At this point I know where he’s at, I just need to make sure I am there as well. And that means I have to extend total forgiveness to everyone,” Woods said.

Part 2 of the interview with Charles Woods
In the final debate, I could have sworn that 0 said that they sent in a rescue team. No one has brought this point up.
Exactly. Biden seems to me to be drunk all the time. His commetns were disgusting
God Bless the hero, his parents and his family
As a compare and contrast, the following link is from an old letter written by a military commander who received a visit from President Bush during a brief stop. The commander’s son had recently be killed in action.
....A short time later, the Secret Service opened the door and President Bush walked in. I thought we might get to shake his hand as he went through. But instead, he walked up to my wife with his arms wide, pulled her in for a hug and a kiss, and said, “I wish I could heal the hole in your heart.” He then grabbed me for a hug, as well as each of our sons. Then he turned and said, “Everybody out.”
A few seconds later, the four of us were completely alone behind closed doors with the President of the United States and not a Secret Service agent in sight....
I did not hear that, if obama said it - he lied.
They did nothing.
I’m pretty sure he said it because I was thinking, “Huh??”
Now with respect to Libya, as I indicated in the last debate, when we received that phone call, I immediately made sure that, number one, that we did everything we could to secure those Americans who were still in harm’s way; number two, that we would investigate exactly what happened, and number three, most importantly, that we would go after those who killed Americans and we would bring them to justice. And that’s exactly what we’re going to do.
The biggest stench is that it is beginning to look like Obama went nighty-night to rest up for Las Vegas, instead of seeing the crisis through and (had he been awake) ordering a rescue mission.
In Behghazi, after 6-8 hours in a few Fort Apaches with running street battles between, like a mini Blackhawk Down, the living Americans must have been thinking, Any minute now, here come the helicopters.
But they didnt. So even though Delta had forward staged to Sigonella Sicily (rumint) from base in Germany, nobody was willing or able to pull the trigger and send a rescue force. Or even a few F-18 supersonic flybys, to bust windows and warn, Here comes American airpower, and you camel jockeys know what that means. Just as a morale booster it would have helped the besieged staffers.
But it was never sent, not even a lousy supersonic low-level flyby.
Here is the deal. The military automatically does a lot on its own, under standing orders and SOPs. The minute they see that the consulate is under attack, and the ambassador and others are in a "safe room" hiding, it becomes TOP priority. Every other mission aborts or slaves over to support any possible rescue.
At that moment when the alarm messages come in, things happen on autopilot in real time. Everybody in the Navy and USAF chain of command swings into a crisis contingency plan mode. What ships are closest? Helicopters? Marines? Delta is in Germany? Get them moving right now. Where is closest? Sigonella, for now. Its NATO, no permission needed, just fly. En route in C-17s, the D-boys would even be prepping for an immediate action raid, that is, the C-17s will fly directly to some desert road outside of Benghazi, and here comes The Raid On Entebbe, crisis mode, canned actions, but they would do it. If they were ordered to. They would coordinate with fighters out of Italy, mid-air-refueling platforms start shifting, it's a huge show that swings into action for thousands of miles around Behghazi. The ongoing consulate attack is JOB ONE, the only job. VIPs will be tossed off of planes at remote runways if they need that platform.
Or Marines on amphib ships in the central Med, if any were available, would also be put on the real-time options board. We used to have a "Amphibious Ready Group" of about 3-5 USN gator freighters, including a helo carrier like a Tarawa class. They carry an entire battalion of USMC, plus SEALs etc, with helos and Ospreys to carry them all. (But not at once.) Where was our ARG? Does our Navy have enough ships for that mission any more?
But while all of that military staging would have happened/did happen during the battle at the consulate, what they cannot do on their own say-so is cross an international border without an order from the NCA, the National Command Authority, and that means POTUS, Obama.
Only POTUS can authorize a cross-border hostile mission. That is, guns clear, no official permission from the Tripoli govt (if it really exists outside State Dept fantasies.)
Only one man can pull that trigger and say, "GO!" Obama.
(But for America to act "unilaterally" would have meant the bogus Libyan Arab Spring and so-called new govt. that we were propping up didnt really exist. Libyan sovereignty must be held sacrosanct, even the false image of one, where in reality, Al Queda is top dog in Libya. Even when an Al Queda offshoot is your external "security," namely, "The 17th of February Martyrs Brigade." (IOW, the White House thought they had a "deal" with AQ in Behghazi, since we were helping to run weaponry from Libya to their pals in Syria. So there was an "institutional bias" at State against crossing the border on a rescue operation sin permisso.)
Anyway, be that as it may, no General or Admiral will order the Marines ashore, or a Delta raid or even an F-18 low-level supersonic flyby. They can not and will not cross a border without an order from POTUS via the NCA. Not even Hillary can make that decision. Only Obama.
But no order came, as of midnight in DC. And then none would come. Because the POTUS retired for the night with a do not disturb sign on his door, punted, and went to bed, to be well rested for Las Vegas.
While his ambassador was off the U.S. radar, missing, at that moment possibly being dragged down a Benghazi street or even raped. But that is when Obama went to bed. Midnight in DC is 0600 in Beghazi.
That is the greatest scandal of Benghazi. The POTUS slept through it, while all around the world, military forces were poised for the Raid on Entebbe or any other damn thing the POTUS ordered them to do. (And the were raring to go, believe me.)
But the POTUS said, Well discuss it further in the morning, and then he went to bed around midnight in DC, 0600 in Benghazi, with a missing ambassador and a crisis in full mega flap process.
He punted. He went to bed.
God help us. I think thats the big secret they are keeping. The President went to bed, with his lost Ambassador being dragged through streets.
Obama went to bed.
Obama is petrified that Americans will figure out that this administration gave weapons to Muslim terrorists including Al Qaeda to overthrow Gadhafi.
When that happens, the scam that is Obama will collapse, everyone will see that this empty suit is really an empty chair.
The Muslim terrorists were on top of the world. Now they are exposed. But then again, the Presstitutes will never believed that they were all fooled by one of the biggest lies in history.
“I want to honor my son, Ty Woods, who responded to the cries for help..”
There are men that run to the fight, and those that run away. I’m glad that Mr. Woods was able to deeply know such a man, and only briefly had to meet with another.
The recent Marine that received the Medal of Honor drove to the sound of battle, in spite of him being denied, four times, his request to help his brothers in arms. Among the many other secrets of Benghazi, it would surprise me if these two ex SEALS also made a similar request and ignored the orders to stay put.
God bless these men, and all our brave men and women.
People can say what they wish about Bush II but that man was the genuine article.
President George W. and Mrs. Laura Bush - A Class Act.
Barrybama and Moochelle - Also a class act, just low class.
Yes, he went to bed. He slept while Americans were literally being hunted for hours and hours.
“The U.S. military did not quickly intervene during the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya last month because military leaders did not have adequate intelligence information and felt they should not put American forces at risk, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said Thursday. “
The whole thing doesn’t make any sense.
I found it...
Obama: “Now with respect to Libya... as I indicated in the last debate, when we received that phone call, I immediately made sure that number one, we did everything we could to secure those Americans who were still in harm’s way. Number two...”
The only real answer that I can see is that they didnt want to anger the Libyan terrorists.
The Vice President was also there, Woods explained. He said Im Joe Biden. He said he had received one of these damn phone calls when he had lost a family member. And then about a half hour later he approached me and said and these are the exact words he said I dont speak like this quote and in an extremely loud and boisterous voice he said: Did your sons always have balls the size of cueballs?
What did Biden mean by that cue ball remark and why did he say “sons”?
Biden comment was easily the most insensitive comment he has ever made...and that is saying something. Thanks, Delaware.
Biden’s comments to the father are bizarre, inappropriate and just weird. How on Earth did the father reply to that?
Praying that many eyes are opened in the next week and a half.
Why no rescue mission? Obama was asleep.
Death was not instant in this case....they fought hard...fought long enough to be rescued...and it NEVER EFFIN' CAME....
FUX YOU BARAK OBAMA....JUST FUX YOU.
At some point before they died for their country, their mission, regardless of whther they were former military and contract personel or not, they had to realize their country was not coming to save them.
Shame on you, you purple lipped bastard and you freakin' Arkansas redneck bitch...just shame on you. God is going to have his will with you.
And for the love of God, any of my so so called fellow conservitives out there right now who won't vote for Romeny because of your ideals...well FUX you too. A Johnson vote...and especially a "NO" vote after this obvious muslim in the white hut bull$sit is obviously a terroristic vote in my eyes. If this SOB remains in office, how will you sleep at night??? How the eff' will you sleep?
Pst. Don't tell Obama I told you but what he's really worried about is you figuring out what really happened in Libya. If you understood that this administration gave weapons to Muslim terrorists (including Al Qaeda) to overthrow Gadhafi, you might be shocked.
But what Obama is really worried about is that Americans are going to eventually figure out that those same weapons were used to kill Americans.
And it gets worse than that once you start thinking.....
Behind Biden’s laughing, joking, off the wall comments is a very mean, viscious streak..an anger that rages and comes out as a venemous sarcasm.
This is heartbreaking....I am ashamed of my country for him.
My apologies...this post was from me....I share a PC with my FIL, Billhilly and forgot to sign out/sign on...I do not speak for him or anyone else!
It started in the middle of the afternoon D.C. time
I have never been so pissed by the (in)action of a politician as this. These guys made a deal with the devils, and now they are doing everything they can to hide it.
I believe he was at Walter Reed with Michelle when he was notified or had just left there. Someone printed his schedule a couple weeks ago. He went to the WH after Reed.
I’m with you.
I'm not sure where Obama was minute by minute from noon on 9-11 until noon on 9-12. But I'd love to know. And know if he slept, while his ambassador was missing.
I saw that was on his schedule, but I would never trust his schedule to mirror what happened. IOW, I don’t think he has three hours almost every day penciled in for golf, but he finds the time. For all we know, “Walter Reed” might be code for “golf.” Was he really there? I’d need witnesses, not a schedule.
And the rest of the night, was he in the Situation Room or not? When? It’s all logged in/out, I presume.
And did Obama “retire for the evening” while Ambassador Stevens was missing in Benghazi?
Inquireing Minds want to know. (But none of them at the MSM.)
22-men might be a large police response but it is a pitiful military response. I have personally worked with forces smaller than that but they had massive aerial fire power at their immediate beck and call; an 8-man team supported by a Specter gunship with extremely liberal ROEs is the smallest I would have committed to that mission.
What we saw, have seen, and will continue to see is the result of our current political leadership (D) being absolutely unwilling to pay the political price for being wrong.
When I was a young man, about the age of today's line grunts we had LBJ (D) and Robert McNamara (D) who were unable to pay a similar political bill by admitting they had no clue about Vietnam; how to win or how to get out. And how many men out of the 58,000 + on THE WALL paid for their actions?
Here’s from the 2nd debate:
Obama: “...so nobody’s more concerned about their safety and security than I am. So as soon as we found out that the Bengazi consulate was being overrun, I was on the phone with my national security team and I gave them three instructions. Number one: beef up our security and procedures, not just in Libya, but in every embassy and consulate in the region. Number two: investigate the facts...”
No class---they can't even recognize it.
“She?s more intelligent than I am,”
I doubt that.
My heart goes out to these families. My father died a few months ago - he was 79 and didn’t suffer after living a full and good life...and it still hurts. Much worse must be the loss of a child who was young and vibrant, who (most parents believe) is supposed to bury you. Compounding this is the apathy and the sheer incompetence that turned this horrible loss into a complete waste - i.e. no comfort can be obtained from a “good” death. Worst of all is the outright lying, and the fact that the lying was AND IS being done to save a worthless politician’s career.
I would be livid, and make it my life’s mission to defeat this POS, and to then hound him for the rest of his miserable life.
We can read about it here, or in the sites linked to...but most of the public will get only the diversionary stories being put out by the administration and the mainstream media. They don't care what comes out after Nov. 6--they just have to keep the lid on for another 12 days.
The lesson to all of us is that our deaths would be met with the same indifference by the same liberal elites. It could happen here. Liberal elites don't care about the lives of the SEALS, they don't care about our lives either.
If democrats loaded conservatives on train cars the New York Times wouldn't cover it... or they'd buy every lie Obama put out... CNN would think it's nothing - ABC's Bob Schieffer would tell people the 'losers' always complain... which is historically accurate - sick but accurate. Network news would give the story a minute at 6:35...
Our people in Benghaze were slaughtered when they could have been saved. Was it a teachable moment? Liberal elites could allow the same to happen to conservatives. The boot on the neck presses down... what would we do? This isn't the country we grew up in ... the Unite States doesn't allow four men to be slaughtered and raped while hundreds listened in and watched - doing nothing. It's creepy. This election matters.
Why won’t networks give this man the time of day?
The collectivists dems won't use trains. They will use big yellow school buses.
And... brain muddled conservatives will meekly board them just as they were so careful trained to do in their socialist and single payer government K-12 schools.
And....Some, even here on Free Republic, think natural born citizenship is a mere “technicality” that voters shouldn't worry about.
Don’t forget that BO said that the American military fights on “my behalf”.
